Melbourne Renegades will take on Perth Scorchers in the 17th match of the BBL 2021/22 on Wednesday. Melbourne Renegades did not have memorable outings in their previous two matches, as they lost badly against Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers. They must win this match to move up in the points table. Australian white-ball skipper Aaron Finch is back into the squad which will boost their confidence to some extent.
Perth Scorchers, on the other hand, have won 4 matches on the trot and have secured 14 points. They defeated Hobart Hurricanes in their previous fixture by 42 runs. Curtis Patterson and Andrew Tye shined with the bat and ball respectively in an emphatic win. They will look to maintain their unbeaten streak.
